About

This is the first commercial release of the BBCís radio broadcast of a play based on 'The Pilgrimís Progress' in September 1943, with incidental music by Vaughan Williams. This was eight years before Vaughan Williams completed his opera of the same name, so there are dramatic and musical differences. Sir Adrian Boult conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, and the cast of actors is led by John Gielgud as Christian.

Additionally, there are recordings from 1929 of two choruses by Sir Granville Bantock written for a production celebrating the tercentenary of John Bunyan, performed by the National Chorus and the BBC Wireless Symphony Orchestra under Stanford Robinson.
